Submission + - Tennessee Blackmailing Residents With Terrorist Watchlist

An anonymous reader writes: A Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation deputy director is now threatening citizens with being listed as terrorists for giving official complaints:

"But you need to make sure that when you make water quality complaints you have a basis, because federally, if there's no water quality issues, that can be considered under Homeland Security an act of terrorism."

No comments provided about whether the actual complaints have been investigated yet.

Partial audio recording available in story.
